Seattle Bungalow in a Perfect Location!

Seattle Bungalow in a Perfect Location!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 24, 2014
House, 2-3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Charming bungalow in Wallingford - one of Seattle's best urban neighborhoods, nestled between Fremont and the University District. The house is in a safe and quiet but vibrant neighborhood and is only a 10-minute drive to downtown locations such as Pike's Place Market, the Space Needle, several museums, Capitol Hill, Key Arena, both Safeco and Qwest/Century Link fields, and to downtown ferries to Bainbridge Island or the Clipper to Victoria. It is only minutes away from the University of Washington, Seattle Pacific University, and the zoo. Bus service is within blocks. Easy on-street parking.

The house is in a great walking neighborhood (WALKING SCORE 97/100) - within walking distance of many restaurants and cafes, two movie theaters, a grocery store, banks, shops, and bars. Walk down the hill to the south to Gas Works Park on the northern shore of Lake Union with incredible views of downtown Seattle and the Space Needle. Or walk north to Green Lake, one of the most popular parks in the city with rental boats, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, a city 9-hole golf course, community swimming pool, and a 3-mile walking trail around the lake. There are two wonderful playgrounds less than six blocks away, and a smaller one a half block away. There are two wading pools for young children: one about 5 blocks to the south and one at Green Lake.

The house was built in 1916 - it has a very private fenced-in backyard patio, a nice front porch with room for two, a soaking tub in the master bath, and a large living room. All on one floor. Two bedrooms contain queen beds; a hide-a-bed in the living room can accommodate two additional guests. Hardwood floors throughout. An ideal home for two couples to share or a family in town for a wedding, birth, graduation, vacations, or reunions. For 'unrelated' friends, a third, very small bedroom with a double bed is available for $50 extra per night (on the same floor). Let me know if you want this option. The limit of guests for the house remains at 6 total.

WiFi internet and flat screen TV with comcast cable included.

A portable crib is available upon request.

The house has just about everything you'll need in kitchen supplies and dishware, linens, and I've just upgraded to 800 TC Egyptian cotton sheets in the three bedrooms.

The Skansonia, a popular wedding venue, is just down the street.

As I know plans change, I allow refunds up to 30 days before the occupancy period. For that reason, I have a waiting list for last minute cancellations. If the time period is listed on the calendar is 'unavailable,' you can request to be placed on the waiting list.

For more information, read what former guests have to say in the REVIEWS SECTION.

What I have to say about MY GUESTS: I started renting out my home on VRBO in 2009 and I have had hundreds of wonderful guests stay at the Bungalow. It has turned out to be so much fun being able to contribute to the special times in people's lives: graduations, weddings, new grandchildren, and reunions. I always enjoy meeting my guests whenever possible while remaining respectful of their privacy. They have consistently returned the favor by being respectful of the Bungalow. It continues to be a great partnership.

A NOTE ABOUT THE RATES:

I have two options: I can lock the third bedroom and charge less for smaller groups (two couples, small family, etc.) who don't need the 3rd bedroom. But many people want all 3 bedrooms. This website can't accommodate this '3-bedroom' option in the rates section if I use the 'pay online' method which people seem to want.

So the rates are as follows in the summer:

2-BEDROOMS - $295/night; $1950/wk

3-BEDROOMS - $345/night; $2250/wk

If this doesn't seem right when you're paying online, let me know and we'll figure it out.

About the Owner

Photo at left is just before snowmachine ride on Vatnajokul Glacier in Iceland, summer 2009. Renting out my home during the summer has allowed me to travel quite a bit.

In 2010 we went to Buenos Aires and visited Turkey and Amsterdam (stayed on houseboat through VRBO) in 2011. We spent New Year's Eve 2012 in a VRBO apartment in the heart of Paris followed by a winter weekend in Iceland.

Travel Update: In October 2013 we took my 91-year old mother-in-law on her first trip to Israel. We had a fabulous time. Now, August 2014, we've just returned from a trip up and down the coast of Maine.

I lived in this house for about 18 years. It is a wonderful home in a fun and vibrant neighborhood. Even though we're just 10 minutes from the downtown core, the sought-after neighborhood of Wallingford feels like a small town. The home was built in 1916.

I grew up in Rhode Island and the Bay Area, then spent 14 years in Alaska, finally landing here in Seattle, the perfect combination of city, salt water, and mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, grown son and I stayed in the bungalow for 5 nights in May and we were very happy with the accomodations. The house is cozy and charming and had everything we needed. The neighborhood is wonderful with many restaurants, shops, grocery, etc. within easy walking distance. We especially loved the beautiful backyard and enjoyed having friends over to sit outside and have appetizers before walking to a nearby restaurant for dinner. Bridget was very good about checking with us to make sure we knew how to operate everything and to see that we had every comfort. Highly recommended!

Comfy Cottage!

My family and I and I had a great time that this home. As soon as we got there, it was like being at home. My son enjoyed sitting in the backyard watching the resident squirrel. We enjoyed walking in the neighborhood to the local shops and restaurants and Seattle was close, too. We would definitely come back again!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this Seattle Bungalow! The location was within walking distance from the lake which was beautiful. The house was very comfortable and clean. We love a house with lots of character and this had just enough. Especially the master bedroom the kitchen nook and the great outside spaces (front and back).

Cute House, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house in June for myself, my two grown sons and a daughter-in-law and we were all very comfortable here. It was nice to have two full bathrooms and the one is attached to the bedroom in the back of the house making it a great little master suite. All appliances worked perfectly and the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, dishes, and glassware. There were a few things provided also like coffee, a Brita pitcher of water, and plenty of spices, which are always nice to find. The location was perfect for us; ten minutes north were my family in Shoreline, ten minutes south is downtown, it was close to Fremont, Greenlake, the zoo, and walking distance to restaurants and my favorite - a wine bar - on 45th. My biggest concern before renting was the parking on the street but we always found one almost directly in front of the house. Often my parents came to visit before we were on our way out for the day and they never once had trouble finding a spot. I would highly recommend this for a girlfriend weekend or families - a great value!

Doesn't Disappoint!

Doesn't Disappoint!

The bungalow layout met our needs (5 adults) comfortably, and the ample kitchen seating along with adjoining patio accommodated visits from hungry grandchildren. It was
considerately supplied with everyday necessities. (The bathroom scale could be a
bit daunting after Molly Moon's Ice cream, and TNT Taqueria, and Tutta Bella, and....)
Bungalow Guest Instructions very helpful by anticipating household questions, as well as providing local recommendations. Location was great for walking; not too far, not too close. Bus downtown convenient (no traffic worries!). Local parking sufficient. One consideration might be the two short-but-steep flights of steps to the front door.
Bottom line: we had a wonderful time, and plan to stay here again in the future.

Wonderful place to stay in Seattle

  • 5 of 5
It is so quiet in this neighborhood, it is hard to believe you are in Seattle! We stayed in this adorable house while visiting our son who attends the University of Washington. The bungalow is located in a great location with a grocery store complete with a Starbucks within easy walking distance. There is also a delicious ice cream store nearby on 45th Street. Parking was never a problem right in front of the house. Walk over to Green Lake for some exercise and great people watching. The house has everything you need! I highly recommend it.

We had a great stay at this nice home and really enjoyed the surrounding neighborhood of Wallingford. There were many good eateries/bars within 3 blocks and the nearby grocery store was convenient. Centrally located to allow easy access to various parts of Seattle including access to I-5 for downtown and University Village.

Owner was friendly and provided lots of recommendations. Next time we're in town, we'd consider staying here again since it accommodated our larger group.

Amenities

From the Owner

The best part about this house is the neighborhood. There are two major roadways into downtown, plus numerous side streets (and three more bridges). But in the neighborhood, great restaurants are within walking distance: Tilth, Musashis, Eva's, Kisaku, Julias, Bizarros, Joule, Blue Star Pub, Tutta Bella, Murphy's Pub, Smash Wine Bar, Tangletown Pub, several Thai places and too many other restaurants and coffee houses to list. And you are close to other great neighborhoods like Fremont, Ballard, Phinney Ridge, Green Lake, University District and Eastlake.
